Hot and sunny again. Used my bakery discount card and bought the bun below for brunch. It is filled with corn, a long thin hotdog-like sausage and some other things. The bread had a different flavor, but it wasn’t like rye or pumpernickel. It was very good.
Went to the library and read a couple of hours in the morning, then walked around a couple of hours before returning to my neighborhood.
Stopped at a cafe for a beer to cool off before going home. I was served a counterfeit Tsingtao. I poured it out and they brought me a real one. I have stopped at that cafe several times previously and never had that problem before. They counterfeit everything here.
Had lotus root soup at Sea’s house for dinner. In addition to the lotus root, pork bones and red dates, Sea added some dehydrated brown mushrooms. They added another level of flavor to the soup, but I didn’t like their texture. They were a little stringy or chewy.
Sea asked me to accompany her to the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) hospital tomorrow. There is a giant, 20+ floor TCM hospital about 4 blocks from here. Something is wrong with her health, but I’m not exactly sure what. I know her shoulder is giving her pain. Maybe she has arthritis. I said sure, I’d go. I’m interested in seeing what’s inside a TCM hospital and how they treat patients.
